Left 4 Dead Reborn is focused on bringing a more realistic and intense experience to Left 4 Dead. Currently version 1 is a simple config file, although it's changes shouldn't be dismissed easily. Only the most hardcore players will be able to survive a campaign on Advanced or Expert. Even on easier difficulties, this mod provides a greater challenge than standard Left 4 Dead. A full feature list is below.

L4D Reborn V1 Feature List:

-A simplified HUD only shows your inventory and crosshair, as well as the occasional hint/tip (if you have them enabled). To see your health, or the health of your team, you must use the score-board.

-No more silhouette glows for survivors, to find team-mates or items, you'll have to look carefully.

-Common Infected have one fifth the health, but there are 3-5 times more of them scattered around and in hordes.

-Friendly fire damage set to 5 times in ALL difficulties, don't expect to save a team-mate from a hunter with a close-range blast from a shotgun!

-Fire does twice the damage in ALL difficulties, avoid it at all costs, or pay the price.

-It takes 3 times as long to revive a downed survivor (15 seconds).

-Survivors limp at 20 health instead of 40, but they walk far slower.

-Pills now give survivors 100 temporary health.

-The mounted minigun does far more damage and overheats far slower.

-The Tank has half the health, it's no longer quite as bullet-proof.

-The Witch has half the health, moves faster, gets angrier far easier, and deals 10 times more damage to downed survivors.

-The Hunter has halved health, but deals 5 times more damage.


Left 4 Dead Reborn will work perfectly with multiplayer co-op, but only if you host your own DEDICATED server. I believe this costs money, so I doubt many people will be able to do this. Currently, there is no Versus support, but this may change, if requested.

Mine is a dual core and I run it fine, I've personally set the zombie max amount to 200, but it's only 90 in my mod, and 30 in the default game.

Sounds like Bioshock 2's Hard difficulty, in a nutshell.

Really? I never played Bioshock 2 on Hard, but the if the idea of that is to make the game more realistic, then yes, similar ideas :D

Wow this looks incredible. I am one of those people that never got into this game, it just lacked realism, it felt arcady to me which turned me off. But you're mod reminds me of a more gun oriented/multiplayer version of Dead Rising 2.

Not only is my mod more realistic than the vanilla game, it makes it a truly terrifying experience. Hordes are around 5x larger, and special zombies deal far more damage to you. Plus not knowing where your team is and what they are doing all the time makes the game far harder.

from what you've described, it sounds cool for experienced players, but common players will probably get frustrated too easily and shy away from the mod.

As long as you use your wits, it's not too hard to make it through a campaign on easy or normal. Besides, the mod can be enabled/disabled really easily, so if need be, it's easy to go back to the normal game.
